Demonstrates how to use a subquery in the FROM clause of a query. There is a seriously weird, undocumented format for using a subquery in the From clause - essentially as another table. It won't work if you have spaces or special characters in the names of tables or fields (which I don't like anyway). Because of the syntax, *this* sort of subquery cannot itself contain a subquery of the same format. The syntax is: [insert your query here]. As SomeAlias The left and right square brackets are required, the dot after the right bracket is required, and the As and alias are required. You can't do ANYTHING that would require the use of square brackets, inside the square brackets - that's why no spaces or special characters in names. **Thanks to Don Edwards for sharing this**
